Feinmechanisches Museum Fellenbergmühle – Fellenbergmühle Mechanical Museum

An industrial heritage rarity

The Merzig municipal authority and the Friends of the Fellenbergmühle (Förderverein Fellenbergmühle e.V.) operate a “remarkably different museum” at Marienstrasse 34 in the town centre: The Fellenbergmühle Mechanical Museum.

The precision mechanical workshop at the Fellenbergmühle mill, set up in 1927 in the former flour mill dating back to 1797 and still operational today, is a real industrial heritage treasure. Even after renovation, the workshop retains its original character.

The apparent maze of machines and transmission belts creates an atmosphere that immediately casts its spell on visitors to the workshop. The “cardan wedding ring engraving machine” developed and patented back in 1931 by Johann Peter Hartfuß, the founder of the precision mechanics business in Merzig, can still be used to engrave initials into a ring in just a few minutes.

Using its own turbine, the plant produces the energy required to power the machines. Even today, the energy comes from the dammed Seffersbach stream. The Fellenbergmühle precision mechanical plant impressively documents the transition from manual to industrial production methods, with the characteristic features of factory work.
The professional and exemplary renovation of the Fellenbergmühle was awarded the Saarland conservation prize in 1997.

Marrying in the mill – “Weddings at the Fellenbergmühle”

For those wanting to get married, the Merzig registry office can perform wedding ceremonies in a very special location in the bistro and in the turbine room (the wedding forge) at the Fellenbergmühle.

For a number of years, the Fellenbergmühle has also established itself as a venue for art exhibitions, live music concerts and, to a limited extent, all kinds of celebrations.

Opening times:

Tuesday – Sunday from 14:30 to 17:00. Group tours at any time by arrangement.
